are leading. The contest will close

An important part of the carnival
will be a square dance sponsored by
the eleventh and twelfth grades.
On Monday night, October 24,
1949, a gruop of students and facul
ty members met at the school build
ing for some instructions in square
dancing. Mr. and Mrs. L. G. Jack
son, Sr. came and helped in this
work and the group of about fifty
students greatly enjoyed and ap
preciated their help.
Also helping was a string band
composed of Lloyd Garrison, John
ny Garrison, Jewell Garrison, James
Smith and J. W. Jackson.
All of you people who enjoy an
old fashioned square dance, come
and be with us at our Hallowe’en
Carnival. Your help in making this
part of the program a success will
be greatly appreciated.

Buy A Poppy—
Did you know that the American
Legion was the first national or
ganization to adopt the poppy as its
Memorial Flower and that it was
adopted by the Auxiliary in 1921?
All money derived from the sale
of Poppies goes for the relief of vet
erans and their families.
Did you know that poppies are
made by disabled veterans and
these men receive payment for each
Did you know that more than
$300,000 is paid each year to vet

Each person who buys a poppy is
contributing to the great work of
the American Legion and its Auxil

died that we might live.

GEORGIA HAS OVER
60,000 JOB SEEKERS
Cutbacks in industry in Georgia
have brought on a serious job short
age in the State, Commissioner of
Labor Ben T. Huiet said.
More than 60,000 job seekers now
are registered with the State Em
ployment Service, the labor chief
said. This serious decline in jobs
from last year’s peak was attributed,
in part, to the fact that the textile
industry alone has dropped 20,000
workers from pay rolls in 18
Business readjustments began,
Huiet said, when increased produc
tion approached demand level dur
ing the year.
State Labor Department records
showed that more than 104,000
Georgians filed for State job insur
ance during the nine-month period
ending Sept. 30, 1949. Some of these
workers were working at part time
jobs because their employers main
tained limited production in order
to avoid complete shutdown of
plants. Eighty percent of these
workers, Huiet said, has sufficient
earnings to qualify for insurance.
At the same time, Huiet said that
only one of three of those seeking
work through the State Employ
ment Service are currently filing
Huiet pointed to this optimistic
note when he said that 60 percent
of those eligible for claims this year j
returned to their old jobs, or found
new ones, after receiving an aver
age of five weeks’ payments.
“The problem now facing Geor
gia,” Huiet said, ”is the expansion;
of present industries or the estab
lishment of new industries to ab
sorb workers already trained. Many
must be retrained to fit them for
new occupations "
